Subject: Worth the watch
This is amazing video quality, considering.
Not to be compared to the later version, nor the book, but in 1910 this had to be a real treat. It's a treat to watch it 104 years later, although for different reasons. Take the time to watch it.
Could have done without the dig at unions at the end but overall a cute and very watchable little film. Loved the rudimentary "special effects", the scene with the tornado......... lol. Well worth the 13 minutes it takes to watch. Print decent without much unevenness as in some other films of this age.
This is great find. I just love to watch the film industry in its very beginings. Imagine the children(and adults) being amazed at the flying people. we laugh now, but this at one time was groundbreaking. Thanks for the internet archives, Ive enjoyed hours of watching old films. Donate today.
Subject: Silent better than sound
The story is so familiar to everyone that even this version is no too difficult to follow. The most fascinating character is the trippy lion. I found myself watching him in every scene in which he appeared.
The totally silent version is much clearer than the soundtrack version.
Is it just me or is this the most terrifying interpretations of L. Frank Baum's book ever?
The faces on the trees were certainly eerie, but I think the scariest part was how the animal characters were only halfway anthropomorphised and the costumes they were wearing were also pretty creepy.
I realize this was done in 1910, and actually, I thoroughly enjoyed this version of the story.
Subject: cute classic :)

Subject: Excellent early Oz
It may be a little fuzzy around the edges but I thought it was excellent. I will be watching it again soon.
Subject: Primitive but Charming
Ok, so nobody will mistake this for being a "silent classic", and it seems unlikely that anyone would call it the best version of the story, but this is still a fairly entertaining and charming silent short, produced in 1910. The special effects are good for the time, although just 10 years later they would be vastly out of date. Still, it's worth seeing, and at 13 or so minutes, it moves along quite quickly.
